How is the classic Dunnett test, with strict assumptions, related to Dunnett comparisons run on a top of very liberal models, like GLM or GEE?

As far as I understand, the classic Dunnett test is based on the t-test, applied multiple times to all comparisons vs. control and then corrected. So the assumptions of the Dunnett test must agree ...
